With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, Staithes has the air of a place lost in time. Once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast, this coastal hamlet is now a well-loved base for exploring Yorkshire's cliff top paths and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach.
Fishing hamlet Once a booming fishing port, this charming hamlet is a great base for coastal walks.
This village's unique charm, with its huddled cottages, towering cliffs and choppy sea, has long been a powerful draw for those interested in fine art, geology and getting back to nature. The ‘old village', located in a small, sheltered cove at the base of the cliff, is peppered with small B&Bs and local fishermen's cottages - the perfect place to spend a long weekend.
The soaring, rugged cliffs make Staithes a great place for walking and exploring. Take the coastal pathways to the nearby Boulby Cliffs, or visit the northern headland of Cowbar Nab with its tiny hamlet snaking down the rock side. Part of the Cleveland Way runs between Staithes and Skinningrove, where you can explore the remnants of the alum mines that once made the village famous. This headland is also an ideal place to bird watch, with plenty of gulls and other seabirds nesting in the cliffs.
Staithes was once an important fishing base, home to locally built boats and a small fleet of brightly coloured Whitby Cobles. Now, the boats are used by local fishermen to catch cod, lobsters and crabs and some vessels offer short pleasure cruises. The tiny beach and cluster of rock pools make this a wonderful place to explore, and there are so many fossils that this area that it has been nicknamed the ‘Dinosaur Coast' - so keep your eyes open! In terms of culinary delights, The Royal George and Captain Cook Inn are both perfect for popping in for a drink after a walk along the coast and the Cod & Lobster offers the ideal place to enjoy a real ale while watching the waves. Whatever you choose you will be guaranteed a cosy atmosphere, fine cask real ales, real coal fires and a warm and friendly welcome.
Visitors to this small village will be astounded by how much history surrounds it.
Old Jack's Boat features Bernard Cribbins as ‘Old Jack', a retired fisherman who lives in a little village on the North Yorkshire Coast. This little village just happens to be Staithes! Helped along by a cast of colourful characters, ‘Old Jack' tells tall stories from inside his old fishing boat. The series is a mix of live action and animation which allows Old Jack to wander along the seabed, visit tropical islands and fly high in the air on balloons always accompanied by his faithful dog, Salty.
Taking the kids hunting for fossils amongst the rock pools all whilst telling them that Jurassic Park could really happen!
The annual nightgown parade as part of the Lifeboat Weekend in August is brilliant - many of the local women still wear Staithes bonnets for it and some can still be bought today in the gift shop.
The local fishermen will sometimes organise fishing parties for sea anglers, if interested it is best to enquire at the harbour for details.
Memories of my mum catching more crabs than my brother on the pier still make me smile. Family days in Staithes were great.
Nice fish and chips in the cod and lobster pub, a gallery to look around and lots of nice fisherman's cottages to rent and stay in for a weekend getaway.
